“I think there is a certain beauty about being alone and these shots really signify that…“


Growing up, I moved around a lot and in turn was confronted with a lot of different situations and adventures. The only constant I can ever say I’ve had is skating and a fascination for film, as the people I surrounded myself with were always documenting and filming their day-to-day lives.  I was never your classic 13 year old kid who got a camera from their parents and then knew that I wanted to be a photographer/videographer, instead I was always that kid who liked to play with remote control cars and skylectrics, and I guess talking about it now, that is where my intrigue started with drones.

This selection of aerial photos I have chosen ties in with my feeling towards growing up and moving around all the time. I think in our lives we more often than not end up too close to things and then become very short sighted. With that being said I like to gain a different perspective and sometimes remove myself completely.  I think there is a certain beauty about being alone and these shots really signify that, because despite what happens the wind still blows, the water still runs and the world carries on.”
